Karding Vermont wa» eettled by
the announcement of the complete
vote, which gave Taft a majority of
924 votes.
At 12:45 the Providence, R. 1., Jour
nal conceded that state to Wilson, and
with the vote close in New Hampshire,
it seemed probable that New England
entire, with the exception of Vermont,
had gone over to the democratic column.
In only seven of the twenty-nine
states which elected governors were the
returns up to 11:30 complete enough to
indicate the probable result, and in
only one of these, Illinois, was there
an 'apparent switch from the republi
can to the democratic column.
William Sulzer (Dem.) was elected in
New York. In Massachusetts and In
Connecticut the indications were that
the incumbents, Eugene N. Foss (Dem.),
and Simeon E. Baldwin (Dem.), were
re-elected. In Illinois Dunne (Dem.) ap
peared to be leading by a safe, margin.
Texas returned Oscar B. Colquitt.

states which elected governors:

the following statement from his broth

The returns insure the election of
Governor Wilson today to the pres
idency. This means an early change
in the economic policy in reference
to the tariff. If this change can be
made without halting prosperity I
sincerely hope it may be.
The vote for Mr. Roosevelt, the
third party candidate, and for Mr
Debs, the socialist candidate, is a
warning that their propaganda in
favor of fundamental changes in
our constitutional representative
government has no formidable sup
port.
While the experiment of a change
In the tariff is being carried out by
the democratic administration, it
behooves republicans to gather
again to the party standard and
pledge anew their faith in their
party's principles and to organize
again to defend the constitutional
government handed down to us by
our fathers.
MUST WIN REPUBLICANS BACK
We must make clear to the young
men of the country who have been
weaned away from sound prin
ciples of government by promise
of reforms, impossible of accom
plishment by -mere legislation, that
patriotism and common sense re
quire them to return to a support
of our constitution. Without com
promising our principles, we must
convince and win back former re
publicans and we must reinforce
our ranks with constitution loving
democrats.
We favor every step of progress
toward more perfect equality of
opportunity and the ridding of so
ciety of injustice. But we all
know that all progress worth mak
ing is possible with our present
form of government and that to
sacrifice that which is of the high
est value in our governmental
structure for undefined and impos
sible reforms is the wildest folly
We must face the danger with "a
clear knowledge of what it is.
The republican party is equal to
the task. It has had no nobler
cause. Let us close ranks and
march forward to do battle for the
right and the true.
CONGRATULATES WILSON
President Taft tonight sent a tele
gram to Governor Wilson and Chairman
Hilles of the republican national com
mittee. Here are the messages:
CINCINNATI, 0., Nov. s.—Hon.
Woodrow Wilson, Princeton, N. J.:
Cordially congratulate you on your
election, and extend to you my best
wishes for a successful administra
tion. WILLIAM H. TAFT.
CINCINNATI, 0., Nov. s.—Hon,
Charles D. Hilles, Chairman Re
publican National Committee, Times
Building, New York: You have con
ducted a most difficult campaign in
the face of unusual obstacles. I
congratulate you heartily on the
fight you have made, and I am
deeply grateful to you for it.
WILLIAM H. TAFT.
In the same house where he heard the
news of his victory over William J.
Bryan four years ago. President Taft
tonight read the bulletins that told the
story of the election. Tonight the presi

rOMPLEXION OF
NEW CONGRESS
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1912.
THOMAS R. MARSHALL OF INDIANA, ELECTED VICE PRESIDENT
This excellent portrait of Woodrow Wilson s running mate was taken by a Call photographer on the occa
sion of the recent visit of the governor to San Francisco to select Indiana's site at the Panama-Pacific exposition.
It is one of the most characteristic photographs of Governor Marshall ever made.
Great Cause, People's Right,
Has Triumphed, Says Wilson
PRINCETON, N. J., Nov. s.—Responding to a telegram from the democratic national chair
man asserting that Governor Wilson unquestionably was elected, the democratic candidate sent a,
dispatch to yfr. McCombs as follows:
"I deeply appreciate your telegram and wish to extend to you and the members of the cam
paign committee my warm congratulations on the part you have played in the organization and
conduct of a campaign fought upon essential isssucs.
"A great cause has triumphed. Every democrat, every true progressive, of whatever alliance,
must now lend his full force and enthusiasm to the fulfillment of the people's hope, the establish
ment of the people's right, so that judgment and peace may go hand in hand."
This was Governor Wilson's first utterance of a public character following- his acceptance of
the reports that he had been elected.
committee and father of the tariff meas
ures that made up the greater part of
the work of the present democratic
house, was made certain.
The only socialist in the present
house, Victor L. Berger of Wisconsin,
was defeated for re-election by Repre
sentative W"illiam H. Stafford, a repub
lican nominated on a fusion ticket, with
the democrats supporting him.
Down to defeat with Uncle Joe Can
non went Ebenezer Hill in the fourth
Connecticut district. Representative
Hill for 18 years has been one of the re.
publican tariff experts in the house and
a member of the ways and means com
mittee.
The senate has 60 holdover senators,
of whom 30 are republican and 30 demo
crats. Of the 36 other members 6 have
been chosen, leaving 30 places to be
filled. Of the 6 so far elected, 6 are
democrats —Bankhead of Alabama, Mar
tin of Virginia, Vardaman of Missis
sippi, James of Kentucky and Randell
of Lioulsiana —and one is a republican,
Fall of New Mexico.
OTHER SENATORS TO BE NAMED
The states from which the remaining
30 must be, chosen are: Arkansas,
Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illi
nois, lowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachu
setts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana,
Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey,
Nevada. North Carolina, Oklahoma, Ore
gon, Rhode Island, South Carolina,
South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, West
Virginia and Wyoming.
Of these states Colorado, Idaho and
Illinois will choose two senators each
and the other states one.
As the senate is composed of 96 mem
bers it will be necessary for the demo
crats to elect 13 out of the SO in prder
to obtain a majority and for the repub
licans to elect 18 to procure that advan
tage. Of the 27 states, from which the
new senators must be chosen, seven—
Georgia, Maine, North Carolina, Okla
homa, South Carolina, Tennessee and
West Virginia—are represented by dem
ocrats and the remaining 20 by republi
cans. The returns up to 1 a. m. give
little basis on which to establish the
strength of the parties in the next
senate.
SIMMONS IS RENOMIJTATED
Much interest attached to the report
that Senator Simmons probably had
won a renomination in the North Caro
lina primary today. Next to Senator
Bailey of Texas he is the senior demo
cratic member of the committee on fin
ance. As Bailey's successor has been
chosen by a primary, Simmons would
be in line for the chairmanship of that
most important committee in case of
democratic control of the senate,
Washington gave Theodore Roosevelt
5,874 votes in a straw ballot election
held here today, Wilson 2,692 rotes and
Taft 1,668. Woman suffrage was over
whelmingly approved at the same elec
tion. 10,471 votes being cast for it,
with »02 against it.
WILSON CABINET
W OF DEMOCRATS
By IRA E. BENNETT
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
WASHINGTON. Nov. o.—Although in
dependent republicans aided largely In
his election, the cabinet of President
Woodrow Wilson will be made up al
most exclusively of the democrats who
not merely aided in his election, but
who helped him win the nomination at
Baltimore.
Governor Wilson, it was learned to
night, has told a friend of William J.
Bryan, that he would be glad to offer
the once "peerless leader," now de
throned by the rising of a new ruler of
democracy, the portfolio of secretary of
state. £
The president elect made that state
ment to friends of Bryan even before
he was nominated, and he has repeated |
it since. Bryan, when told of it, said
that he would not mind having the job
offered to him, but he would not accept
under any circumstances.
He appears to be the Roosevelt of,
the democratic party—standing on the
sidelines for four years, possibly pick- !
ing flaws in the new ruler and possibly
falling out with him as Roosevelt fell
out with Taft. It was Bryan who "put
one over" on Wilson at Baltimore by
writing into the democratic platform
a pledge to but one term, and while
Wilson has never adopted that plank
as his own, it is quite likely that it
will be forced home to him before he
is very long In the White House.
BRYAN WATCHES 1916
For Bryan, like Roosevelt, is already
preparing for 1916.
Unless Wilson Is to have a disrupted
democratic party on his hands he will
be forced to consider Champ Clark. It
is likely that Clark will demand a
cabinet appointment for Theodore Bell,
democratic leader of California, who led
the speaker's fight at Baltimore. Bell is
said to have had corporation affiliations
in California and this may prevent his
selection for a cabinet post.
For secretary of state with Bryan
eliminated the man most talked of
among leading democrats is Senator
O'Gorman of New York.
For attorney general the leading men
under consideration are A. Mitchell
Palmer of Pennsylvania; Henry D. Clay,
ton of Alabama, chairman of the house
judiciary committee; Joseph E. Davis,
member of the national commission
from Wisconsin, and Louis D. Brandies,
the scientific management lawyer.
SPRECKEI.S IN LIMPS FOR POST
Should Brandies refuse to accept a
cabinet job recognition might then fall
on Rudolph Spreckels, who organized
the Republican Wilson league, or on
Charles R. Crane, the man who almost
became minister to China, but was re
called.
Albert J. Burleson of Texas is frankly
a candidate for secretary of agriculture.
For secretary of the treasury the
choice lies between Henry Morganthau,
who was treasurer of the Wilson cam
paign funds, and William G. McAdoo,
vice chairman of the national demo
cratic committee.
Othef positions: William McCombs,
postmaster general.
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, secretary of the
department of agriculture.
William R. King secretary of the In
terior.
Senator Gore of Oklahoma can have
almost anything he wants from Gover
nor Wilson, but it is not believed he
will want a. cabinet post.
TAFT SMILE IS

[Spccr'ai Dispatch to The Call]
CINCINNATI, N T ° V - s.'—PresidMit Taft
was smiling his brightest whervlhe cast
national baljot 103 and five other vot
ing papers devoted to lfcal affairs at
12:ao o'clock today. The preside§t took
the full allotted five minutes to record
his Tote. He was given a rousing re
ception.
ous cheers followed.
Taft voted in an upholstery shop at
2008 Madison road, the polling booth for
his precinct. A flashlight photograph
was taken of the scene in the crowded
little room as the president received his
ballot from the election judge.
Before leaving the polling place Taft
shook hands with each official in turn,
several of whom were personal friends!
Hβ left the booth to drive to a tele
graph office, where he dispatched a tele
gram to Mrs. Taft in New York.
Mrs. Taft's Attitude
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
NEW YORK, Nov. s.—Mrs. Taft fol
lowed the course of the voting from
the bulletins received at the New York
home of the president's brother, Henry
W. Taft, where she spent the <lay.
Early in the forenoon she received a
telegram from her husband, sent from
Cincinnati. She replied in a message
which she told reporters was "not
worth publishing, it being of no sig
nificance."
Mrs. Taft seemed in excellent spir
its. One of her closest friends in this
city said:
"Much as she may feel that her hus

will be very glad to have him more to

UMPIRE STATE
£ IS FOR WILSON
NEW YORK, Nov. 6.—Woodrow Wil
son was the choice of the state of New
York for president by a plurality esti
mated at midnight at about 200,000
from returns received from nearly
every election district in the greater
city of New York and from all but 500
of the 3,093 districts outside of New
York city.
President Taft led Colonel Roosevelt
in the same districts by about 35,000
votes.
Congressman William Sulzer was
elected governor with a plurality esti
mated at midnight at about 175,000
over Job E. Hedges, the republican
nominee, who in turn led Oscar Straus,
candidate of the progressive party, by
about 17,000 votes.
William Bafnes Jr.. chairman of the
republican state committee, issued the
following statement:
"The result of the election in the
state of New York demonstrates one
thing—that the Roosevelt movement
was simply a republican bolt. With
all the frantic efforts that were made
to secure votes from the people gen
erally the result shows that practi
cally none but former republicans
joined the Roosevelt movement.
"The decisive victory of Taft and
Hedges over Roosevelt and Straus is a
demonstration that the republicans of
New York desired the renomination of
President Taft and that the delegates
from this state properly expressed the
preference of the republicans when a
large majority voted for Taft at Chi
cago."

A crowd of villagers waited for an

five minutes, then came out and de
posited his ballot in the box. Then he
went outside and sat in his motor car.
He waited for a quarter of an hour
until the others from Sagamore Hill

news was carried to the former speaker
tears gathered in the old man's eyes.
He was too much affected for words.
His managers say they have not given

the size of Frank T. O'Hair's plurality,

WILSON SWEEPS
BADGER STATE
MILWAUKEE, Wie.. Nov. 6.—Com
plete returns from Milwaukee county
and scattered precincts throughout the
state indicate that Governor Wilson
lias swept Wisconsin by from 20,000
to 30.000 votes. The democratic can
didate carried Milwaukee county over
President Taft by close to 10,000 and
the meag!er returns from up stats
show that Wilson is running well evejfc
in strong republican districts.
Roosevelt is running behind Presi
dent Taft except in Winnebago county,
which the progressive candidate car
ried by* a small margin over Wilson.
Congressman Victor L. Berger of
Milwaukee, the only socialist in con
gress, was defeated for re-election by
former Congressman William H. Staf
ford, who ran as a fusion candidate
on the democratic ticket.
